Kerry’s secret holiday with Brian

They’re both recovering from fresh heartache, but there’s one positive thing to come out of Brian McFadden and Kerry Katona’s recent splits: they’re getting on better than ever.

In fact, Now can reveal that the former husband and wife are planning to put their past behind them and go on a family holiday together for the first time since their bitter break-up in 2004.

Kerry – who was dumped by boyfriend of one month Dan Foden, 28, over Easter – has invited Brian, 31, to go away with her and their daughters Lilly-Sue, eight, and Molly in August to celebrate Molly’s 10th birthday.

Friends of the Irish star say he’s desperate to re-establish his life in the UK after splitting with Aussie fiancée Delta Goodrem last month and now Kerry – who said last year: ‘I’ll always love Brian’ – is hoping he’ll become part of her family again.

‘Kerry’s admitted Brian was “the one”,’ says an insider. ‘She’s planning a holiday to DisneylandParis or Spain for Molly’s birthday and has invited him to join them.’
